After learning how to do the chic bow from Carolina Herrera’s New York Fashion Week show, it’s time to try out the twisted half bun which accompanied Charles Youssef’s spring/summer 2017 collection. This natural polished style is the perfect look to take you from the beach to the bar this summer. Here’s your how-to:

How to create a twisted half bun

1 Start with the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume reverse-wash system. First, use the pre-wash conditioner to soften your hair, followed by the shampoo to wash away weight.

2 Apply a small amount of TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Mousse to the roots of your hair, then blowdry roughly to enhance your natural texture.

3 Create a centre parting. Then casually pull your hair from each side, twisting them as you move toward the back of your head. Make sure to leave a section of hair free at the back. Tie into a loose ponytail.

4 Now divide your ponytail into two sections and twist these all the way to the ends. “Criss-cross the ends to recreate the shape,” suggests Orlando Pita, the hair pro behind this look. Pin in place as you go along to create a wide, flat bun.

5 Work a coin-sized amount of TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Hair Maximiser through the ends using your fingertips to encourage natural waves. 

6 To finish the look, tame flyaways and enhance shine, spray your hair with TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray.
